In light of the coronavirus pandemic, a handful of companies, broadcasters and individuals are doing their bit to ease our social distancing woes – and no, we're not looking at Gal Gadot and her cohort of cringe-worthy A-list mates.
From kids' content to vintage Wrestlemania, here are a handful of freebies and extras for the whole family.
Whether you're an Amazon Prime member or not, you will be able to access a raft of kids' content on the platform for free.
More than 40 children's shows, from Amazon originals such as Pete the Cat and If You Give a Mouse a Cookie to well-known favourites such as Peppa Pig and Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom, won't cost a dime.
All you need to is sign in with an Amazon account, which also costs zilch.
That's one way to keep everyone happy.
Calling all WWE fans: "a vast portion of the WWE Network library" will be available for free to everyone.
That's "thousands of hours of extraordinary on-demand content, including every WrestleMania in history, countless pay-per-view spectaculars, original documentaries and more, for a limited time".
All you need to do is create an account on watch.wwe.com and you're good to go.
WWE Network also offers a free 30-day trial. After that, you'll be charged £9.99/month.
But this year's WrestleMania will not be part of the free library.
If you're a Sky customer, you have automatically been given access to Sky Go Extra, which allows you to access Sky TV on three different devices at the same time – perfect now that entire families are currently spending their time at home.
The broadcaster is also launching Sky History, Sky Nature and Sky Documentaries this spring to offer people "high quality factual programmes that can help educate as well as entertain".
And not only that, if you subscribe to Sky you will be able to watch new movies at home on the same day as their global release following mass cinema closures.
The Hunt, The Invisible Man, Emma and Trolls World Tour are some of the biggest upcoming titles.
Theatre, opera and dance
Marquee TV, the performing arts streaming service, has extended its free trial to 30 days.
After that, it will cost £8.99/month, with the annual subscription reduced from £89.99 to £69.99.
Categories available to watch are: ballet, opera, contemporary dance, theatre and relevant documentaries.
And there are also loads of other free trials to enjoy if you live in the UK, including Amazon Prime (30 days), NowTV (7 days), AppleTV+ (7 days) Britbox (30 days), Quibi (launching April 6 w/ 90 days), and Disney+ (7 days).
David Walliams has also released 30 free audio stories for kids, which can be found on his website.
Those stuck at home with their kids may be able to relate to ‘The World's Worst Children’. I’ll be releasing an audio story every day for the next 30 days for free. First up is The Terrible Triplets! Enjoy. xxx— David Walliams (@davidwalliams) March 23, 2020
